Hillary Clinton May Inspire Us All With Her Endurance

At a time when self-care is being touted as the ticket to staying energized for whatever battles lie ahead, Hillary Clinton may inspire us all with her endurance.

Florence Pugh made her acting debut in the drama film The Falling (2014) and won acclaim for her role as a young bride in Lady Macbeth (2016).

Born on January 3, 1996 in Oxford

Florence Pugh has a knack for playing characters who endure hardships. She portrayed professional wrestler Paige in the biopic Fighting with My Family, a despondent American woman in Midsommar and Amy March in Greta Gerwig’s period drama Little Women.

She made her television debut in a Fox drama pilot called Studio City in 2015. That same year, she was cast as the lead in the independent British drama Lady Macbeth. This film garnered critical acclaim, with Guy Lodge calling her “a major talent to watch”. She also played Cordelia to Anthony Hopkins’ Leir of Britain in King Lear (2018), Charlie / Charmian Ross in the spy movie The Commuter and Elizabeth de Burgh in the Netflix historical film Outlaw King (2018).

Starred in The Falling (2014)

The Falling is a mesmerising psychological drama that establishes Pugh as a unique British talent. She evokes both the authentic grit of British realism and the heady ambition of European experimentalism.

In this modern parable about choices, feminism and why this country has such a complicated relationship to women in power, the film imagines a world where Hillary Rodham never marries Bill Clinton. It also asks whether she would have been the kind of savvy, thoughtful senator we know and love today.

The film marks the second project for writer-producer and The Affair showrunner Littlefield, who will also executive produce the upcoming Hedy Lamarr limited series for Hulu.

Starred in Lady Macbeth (2016)

Florence Pugh’s rise through English-language film has been one of the fastest and most acclaimed. She first captured audiences as pregnant schoolgirl Abbie in Carol Morley’s atmospheric and well-reviewed drama The Falling (2014).

Pugh delivered a stunning, slashing performance reconsidering Shakespeare in director William Oldroyd’s Lady Macbeth (2016). Then she starred as ceramicist Clarice Cliff in the biographical drama The Colour Room.

Her 2019 performances as melancholy American woman Amy March in Greta Gerwig’s acclaimed adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and as professional wrestler Paige in the sports drama Fighting with My Family cemented her star status. She also nailed the role of spy Yelena Belova in 2021’s Black Widow.

Starred in King Lear (2018)

She is a regular on the film festival circuit and recently starred in the thriller Don’t Worry Darling, drama The Wonder, and a voice role for Goldilocks in the animated movie Puss in Boots. She also played a professional wrestler in Fighting with My Family, a despondent American woman in Midsommar, and Amy March in the period drama Little Women.

The actress made a name for herself internationally in 2019 with her roles as a woman fighting to keep her family together in the Netflix iu hành film Outlaw King, a British soldier in the war drama King Lear, and a female doctor in the miniseries The Little Drummer Girl. She is set to star in an upcoming BBC One drama series about Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Starred in The Commuter (2018)

Florence Pugh doesn’t come from a background with any special privileges. Her father, Clinton, is a restaurateur and her mother, Deborah, is a dance teacher.

She made her debut in 2014 with the film The Falling and gained recognition in 2016 with her leading role as a young bride in the independent drama Lady Macbeth. In 2018, she starred in the film King Lear and the miniseries The Little Drummer Girl.

Next up, she will appear as Yelena Belova in the upcoming 2023 Dune sequel from writer-director Denis Villeneuve alongside Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss.

This six-episode miniseries is an adaptation of the John le Carre novel, about a British actress recruited to infiltrate a terrorist group in the late ’70s. It’s also the TV debut of Park Chan-wook, the South Korean auteur behind Oldboy and The Handmaiden.

Pugh is the series’s clear star, as Charmian ‘Charlie’ Ross. The 22-year-old Brit possesses the poised femme fatale carnality and sardonic adolescent streak needed to play such a character. She delivers the scheming, double-agent cliches with can-do competence, and her unflappable moxie is what makes the show work.

Starred in Outlaw King (2018)

Director David Mackenzie (English prison drama Starred Up, Texas bank-robber movie Hell or High Water) returns to his native Scotland for this rousing tale of Robert the Bruce’s bloody struggle for Scottish independence. Chris Pine delivers a bravura performance as the legendary warrior.

For children, a book called Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead chronicles the former president’s ascent from a girl who didn’t think she could be anything to a woman who changed the world. The book is illustrated by Emily Winfield and published by Balzer and Bray.
